Dwelling of Affection

this home

its bones honed

over time with

warmth in each

niche and corner

filled with affectionate

recollections in

each step taken

whether trod or

in thought

a haven over

our head or

sentiments of security

in our psyches

a home filled

with adoration

and heart

becomes one

with life

  1. It has taken a while… but the home I have now is as you describe. Though, if it came down to it – I’d move again if needed with the love of my life. For home, they say is where the heart is. But oh if walls could talk 😉

    Which reminds me of one of the older homes in our area that eventually got moved to a farm… to preserve it. Though no longer open to the public I did get to tour it. And see some unique architecture for a small home 🙂
